Benelli has confirmed its Leoncino models will enter production having previously only shown them as prototypes. The Leoncino is powered by a same 46bhp 500cc liquid-cooled parallel twin cylinder motor and will be available in two versions -, the standard Leoncino and the Leoncino Trail. The two models differ in wheel sizes – 17-inch front and rear for the standard and a 19-inch front for the Trail – and tyre choice, with slightly more trail-orientated tyres on the Trail.
The Lion of Pesaro sits atop the front mudguard on both models.
Both Leoncino models will be available in early 2017 in a choice of red, silver, green and black. Prices are yet to be announced.
